This book is definitely for older students (perhaps upper elementary). I would recommend it to a student who was doing an animal research project.

This story is about a researcher named Lisa Debeck who researches tree kangaroos. This story explains the life of these animals and her experience through her life and where she has been to research. I would use this in a higher elementary class just because I think the little kids would get bored but it is a great book to put with science. ( )

This would be a great book for students in middle school and possibly older for maybe a research project or informative speech. Lots of information on animals and different cultures.

A great book for kids to get the whole picture of what it takes to research an animal in a far off land.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618496416, Hardcover)

It looks like a bear, but isn’t one. It climbs trees as easily as a monkey— but isn’t a monkey, either. It has a belly pocket like a kangaroo, but what’s a kangaroo doing up a tree? Meet the amazing Matschie’s tree kangaroo, who makes its home in the ancient trees of Papua New Guinea’s cloud forest. And meet the amazing scientists who track these elusive animals.
